Finally got blops to work, and golly it’s a lot of fun. A return to form for them

What does that mean, exactly?  Which games is it comparable to?

Less arcadey/unrealy like the new games and More grounded and strategy like the older games. I was really impressed, also no 1 hit melee

I guess I should say a return to form for the COD I love.

Seems like you could slow your gameplay down to almost a MW2 where you could hold a certain area for the entire match.

I'm thinking about combining the Dollar General Gamestop $5 off $30 gift card deal with the $250 XB1S trade for XB1X. I figure I ought to be able to upgrade from S to X for $210 (plus tax) with that combo.

If I could afford to do that, I would. I've bought 3 of the $30 cards this week, but that's all I can do. But let us know how it turns out.

I'm trying not to get caught up in the hype of trading up. I'm looking at a Dreamcast, original Xbox, 360, PS4 slim, two PS3 superslims and a Shield TV sitting next to my Xbox One. I need to just enjoy my systems, not get new ones for "marginal" performance upgrades. Yes, I said marginal since my TV doesn't do 4K.

I really enjoyed it as well. I like the grounded combat, back to basic scorestreaks, and love how the mini-map works now.

 

I get a vibe of Siege with the class options and semi-slower combat. Correct me if I'm wrong but this is also the first game that doesn't delete your equipment after you die and respawn?

I've finally crunched some numbers. If I can manage to get close to $150 out of a Colecovision, (boxed) Atari 7800, and (boxed) Odyssey 2 I think I'll be able to upgrade to a One X. I'm scrounging around my collection and hoping to find a bit more old stuff that I either have extras of or no attachment to. I think I have an extra N64 too. 

Probably will try to list some stuff locally for a day or two but otherwise take to my store. I just don't want the GS prices of stuff to drop, and I don't really want to trade in some of this stuff unless I know I'm getting the X.

 

If I didn't have so many PS4 games backlogged I'd trade that to make it easy, but I'd feel bad with like 15 discs unplayed.

That is a pretty awesome collection of classic consoles to part with. Are you sure its worth upgrading to the X when the next generation is only 2 years away? Thats been the thing holding me back, spedning 500 plus tax just to have the system be obsolete so quickly.

I pre-ordered BLOPS4 yesterday digitally and still haven't received my beta code. How do they usually send them? Through e-mail or an Xbox Live message?

 

I'm still kind of on-the-fence about keeping my pre-order, I was hoping the beta would help me decide. And hopefully they don't block the ability to cancel my pre-order once I get the beta code and redeem it.

I think if you preorder digitally you don't need a code, just search the store for the beta and you can download it.

Gonna take the plunge and upgrade to an Xbox One X thru that Gamestop promo. Trading in the vcr X1 for $200 and my PS4 that I haven't touched since last summer for $250. Also have a few duplicate games I can trade to bring the total to less than $50, even with tax included.

Hyped for tomorrow to come. Gonna wipe both systems tonight before I trade em in. Hoping to upgrade to a 4k/hdr tv this fall season to complete the set up.

Edit: Just realized starting today, the promo includes any new $60 game. Hmmmm, what to pick? Leaning towards Vampyr since I'd like to own it physical.

Or find the game with highest Gamestop value and trade it back in for cash, if you're in a state that does the cash same as credit promo right now.

Excellent line of thinking. Unfortunately, I'm in California and most stores near me don't offer this option. Guess I could flip it on Craiglist or something like that, but I loved Life is Strange and I've been itching to play Vampyr. I'm a cheapo though, so its kept me from buying it since the game released

Just played some of the open beta on PC, and yep, I am officially unable to play FPS on PC anymore. Just can't do it, lol. And the beta doesn't support gamepads, so I'm SOL. Uninstalled.

I ended up back near the mall. Went to GS with my receipt. Woman didn't know about the free physical game. Her co-worker did though and handed her a slip of paper with the promo. Guess it has Madden 19 on it. She gave me that instead of asking. I was going to pick that anyway. Hopefully a decent trade promo for that soon.

Just a heads up as I didn't realize this myself until the other week when I traded in one of my consoles. GameStop claims they'll wipe the console themselves and if you wipe it ahead of time, it supposedly takes an hour plus to get it back in a state where they can test it. So if you do wipe it, go through the process of booting it back up first, but set up a fake email when it asks for an account.

I just transferred from a 3 to 6. It was very easy to transfer, just hook both up to the Xbone.

Downloaded, played, got a few achievements and uninstalled OnRush in less than an hour.

It is a fun game but something didn't click. Can't put finger on it. Literally spent more time downloading it than playing it.

At the end, this was my reaction to it:



Maybe later down the road, once it goes free in a year or so as it has "GWG" written all over it.

Same. I get the general impression from the reviews I've read it's interesting, but not worth buying right now.
